Owner description: Come and try our exciting 3 children's experience's at our wonderful RockShop attraction in Ambleside, including our very own Dinosaur Den themed treasure hunt, jump in to our unique Gem Pit and get creative in our Pippin Bead Bar. All our experiences are designed around the world of Dinosaurs, gemstones and fossils and are suitable for all ages and abilities from 4yrs upwards to join in with the fun. We are the ideal children's wet weather attraction or just somewhere to amuse the kids for an hour in the heart of the English Lake District. Rockshop, Ambleside, is a great place for the whole family, not just a shop... But an experience!

My Husband and I visited The Rockshop on a holiday to the Lakes. We went with our 3 children,11,10 and nearly 2 year old. We paid £9.00 for the two eldest to do the Dinosaur Cave, Bead Bar and Gem pit. The activities were £4.50 each or all 3 for £9.00. The dinosaur cave was great for kids. The bead bar was very much enjoyed and you get a little organza bag with tag on. These can be tied into a bracelet but we decided to keep as a bead bar to put on the curtain tie backs at home. The Gem pit was superb. Its like a little pool full of gems from all over the world. The kids get a little material bag to fill up with gems. The man working there even let us put our youngest in without paying but he started throwing them at the windows so we took him out just incase it broke. Overall great little shop to visit and well worh the £9.00 each.
